This work deals with Bayesian inference for Cox's proportional hazards model. After a brief introduction to the problem, from a historical perspective, an MCMC solution is suggested, based on a novel Bayesian nonparametric approach to hazard rate estimation. The suggested method, allowing for right censored as well as exact observations, is then applied to the well-known leukemia remission times in Cox's landmark paper.
